After playing through hamstring and calf injuries that left him hobbling the past month, Rodgers put on a clinic against the rival Minnesota Vikings.
In his MVP season two years ago, Rodgers threw for 4,381 yards, 38 touchdowns with five interceptions, while rushing for 269 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Green Bay will play for the NFC North championship at Detroit on January 1. The victor of that week 17 match-up will be the NFC North champion regardless of what the Lions do in their Monday night game against Dallas.
“It feels like best thing we could hope for”.
“He instilled a positive attitude within all of us and such and the family tradition was to sit down on Sundays and watch Packer football”, said Stephen Ewell. The NFL could decide to change that kickoff time to 7:30PM central, a decision that must be made by Monday. We’re all still in this thing together. “I don’t think there’s (any) question about it”, coach Mike McCarthy said when asked about Rodgers’ candidacy for a third career Most Valuable Player award.
The Bills, like the Vikings, are 7-7.
The Vikings started the year 5-0 before their bye week.
The defeat was the culmination of a awful 24 hours.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that he has great mutual respect with his two starting cornerbacks, and that any mixup with the game strategy was quickly ironed out during Saturday’s game. We got it corrected after three plays. “I thought we did a good job taking some shots at both of those coverages”. I don’t think the plane ride had anything to do with it or anything else. But there wasn’t enough success in the first half and early second when the game still could have been won.
The 10-year veteran was hurt September 18, when Minnesota beat Green Bay 17-14 in the first regular-season game at U.S. Bank Stadium, and had surgery September 22.
It’s hard to know with a holiday, said owner Scott Widor. In recent weeks, Montgomery still had held those duties as one of the two deep men along with Jeff Janis.
I might even double Rhodes’ fine because he’s suppose to what that challenge.
The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers played at Lambeau Field on Christmas Eve, meeting for the second time this season. The crowd followed with “Jordy!” chants. Instead, the Vikings covered Nelson depending what side he was on.
With Rhodes following Nelson in the second half, he caught two passes for nine yards.
Thielen had an incredible first half (six catches for 142 yards and one Lambeau Leap) and was clearly the best player on the field for Minnesota.
The Packers answered with another touchdown.
It’s also worth noting Rodgers has been forced to carry most of the burden offensively for the Packers while their running back depth has been a mess all season.
